Navy blue and charcoal bathroom with modern luxe twist

We’re always looking for bathroom inspo and love discovering bathrooms that don’t just use white tiles.

This latest project by Studio Black Interiors totally made us swoon — that navy subway herringbone feature wall is next level gorgeous!

We chat with the designer about the inspiration for the space and to get all the supplier details!

Vanity styling

Maria says the feature tile was the starting point of designing this space and everything else was selected to tie in with this statement.

“My client wanted something different to the safe ‘grey and white’ colour palette that’s typically used in bathrooms — but she wasn’t sure how to achieve this look. I pulled together a mood board of ideas, showing how a pop of colour on one wall could create a wow factor and change the mood of a space. 

“The deep sea-blue herringbone tile is the hero of the room and my favourite feature,” says Maria. “I also love the floor and wall tiles and how the space ties together.”

The round mirror also introduces curves to soften the angular lines in here.

Bathroom shutters

A feature that caught our eye was that stunning gunmetal tapware!

“We used the gunmetal range from Phoenix which adds warmth to the space.”

Also adding warmth to the space was that gorgeous timber vanity.

“I love the texture and warmth of recycled timber so we had a reclaimed timber top made by local supplier Thors Hammer.”

“When mixing tiles, look for complementary tones or common undertones, and don’t be afraid to use different shapes and patterns to make it visually interesting.”
